Fatal accident takes life of Hutchinson man

A fatal accident occurred on Highway 7 just east of McLeod Co. Rd. 9 at about 11:18 a.m. Thursday, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Scott Allen Walters, 28, was dead upon the scene from a head-on collision involving two other vehicles.

Walters, who was driving a 1989 Olds Cutlass, was headed westbound when he crossed the center line, according to the patrol.

As he did, his vehicle struck the rear of an eastbound semi-truck driven by James Delamaper, 52, from Ellsworth, Wisc.

Walters' vehicle spun out of control and was struck by a 1994 Ford semi-truck driven by Kevin Penaz, 27, of Glencoe. Neither Penaz nor Delamaper were injured, the patrol said.
